Yeah, the timing is so hard to figure out from tab and with the free tab on line, it seems like a few of the notes are just wrong some of the time. You get what you pay for I guess. Glad to hear the harmonica's coming along so well!

I wouldn't worry about adapting between straight and cross slide too much.
I have chromes in both straight and cross slide, I really feel less difference between slide type than I do between mouthpiece shapes or keys. I believe the difference in slide throw is probably 1mm or less, never measured it though.

Thanks Vicmale to clear my confusion. Though I am very much happy with my Saxony Orchestra but, after going through many reviews on Scx12, I was thinking about the model.

I actually habituated to play straight slide and not confident enough that I would manage to play cross slide. What do you think?

Hello Swaban

I forgot to say that the Suzuki SCX (all models) are cross slide. The Suzuki Sirius 56 has a straight and a crosslide.
Generally, crosslide is supposed to give more volume to the tone due to the more large holes.

Hello

I am absolutely sure that this is so. I have a CX12 and it is crosslide. I also have a Seydel Saxony which is straight slide.
You can see this on the front of the mouthpiece. The CX12 has the first, third, fifth hole open in the upper section when the slide is out send, fourth, sixth hole open in the lower, etc. Vice versa when the slide is in.
On the Seydel all holes are open in the upper section and closed in the lower section when the slide is out.
I think that the CX12 is great instrument with a lot of volume and maintenance is easy. It is very responsive also in the lowest holes.

Regards
Vicmale

Thanks Marcy, the main problem with tab is that it gives you no indication of how long the notes are.

I'll give these a try as I'd like to improve my ability to pick up tunes by ear, often in a session you'll hear a tune and no one, not even the chap playing it will know what it's called, either that or he's got a different name to everyone else :)

It seems to be coming easier on the harmonica then it does on the mandolin for some reason, I have got Howard's first four tunes without much trouble, maybe I knew them pretty well anyway.

Hi. Vicmale, are you telling about SCX12 of Suzuki or Cx12 is a different model? If same, are you sure of its cross slide?

Then I have to rethink of it.

Crawforde replied to the topic 'Easttop harmonicas' in the forum. yesterday

I really like my Easttop chromatic .
Very SCX-like in size and the rounded comfortable mouthpiece, and phos-bronze reeds. It is airtight and easy to play, soft or loud.
I got it early on before they started putting in the stronger mouthpiece screws, but they retrofit it for me. NewHarmonica has awesome customer service.
Easttop really seems to be putting in some effort to make a quality product and overcome the "made in China" low quality reputation.
I would not hesitate to get another. Plus the two dealers that cary them in the US (Rockin Ron, and New Harmonica) are easy to deal with and have great customer service.

Sarge created a new topic ' Easttop harmonicas' in the forum. yesterday

Easttop harmonicas are coming up in the world. Rockin Ron is now carrying them. I have the T008S and I really like it. Until Rockin Ron started carrying them they were only available from newharmonica.com and they still are. In fact newharmonica.com has quite a selection of diatonic and chromatic. I have the T008S and really like it. Have any of you tried one yet?

Thanks so much for the music Erk!
Jeremy, I think you’re right about tab often having mistakes online. I don’t like learning a tune from tab at all. You might prefer to learn along with one of these slower videos. That’s what I like to do anyway. Both are in the key of G, so you’d use your G harp. Hope it helps.
